Specializes in General Practice

With the risk for getting Covid-19 increasing at this time due to the Delta variant it can be risky to get a massage. Covid-19 spreads primarily from person to person & also sometimes from surfaces. Being in a closed area with someone else during a massage can therefore be risky. However, if you do get a therapeutic massage make certain the therapist & you wear masks & everything is very hygienic.
